Re: Minecore: An Engine

I'd like to add to the conversation that the Minecore project seems to focus more on pleasing content creators and players than server owners for example, which sounds interesting. I found it funny this was taken as a compliment, i see it as a concern. I get it. You have to have an understanding of...

Re: Minecore: An Engine

Just to be clear my question earlier wasn't meant to be rhetorical, I was actually asking. Because we don't see how it can be done in MTE currently, also we want to keep all doors open. We're not against the idea of sharing our improvements with Minetest, we'd love to, we just don't know if we can ...

Re: Minecore: An Engine

we never said it wasn't Minetest we were using for screenshots This conflicts with: Minecore's in-game screenshots I'm confused. Is minecore currently an MC concept thing, or not? Ah. Yes, now I see. You're right. I did say that. I will be fixing our post to edit out these contradictions. To clarif...

Re: Minecore: An Engine

At this point, after reading countless statements which completely contradict one another, I really cannot put my support behind this venture at all. Basically it seems the plan was to "Make a big announcement", then plan it all out after, on the fly, as we go. That is my final thought on...

Re: Minecore - A Brand New Engine

"We are going to do better" without any specific part as to what you're going to do better, who is going to do the better, how it is better once it's done. People will find out that this project is essentially attempting to split the community, unintentional or not. That's how I read the ...

Re: Minecore - A Brand New Engine

If you have plans toward a different approach, this can be a good thing, and is definitely supported. The important question is, will your team port upstream? We are freely giving and we are open-source, so yes. Also: what Toby said. As far as breaking backward compatibility, it will come eventuall...

Re: Minecore - A Brand New Engine

I can't say I'm interested in or like this project very much. Your goal seems to be the exact same as what the Minetest developers have in mind for the engine. You say that you have a huge mountain to climb. But where are you on that mountain? Celeron55 started at the bottom, and he, the developers...

Re: Minecore - A Brand New Engine

Also, a must-have for me is that the licensing is a Free Software license (open-source as in GPL or MIT, but not as in Unreal Engine license), and probably the assets too (for example, CC-BY or CC-BY-SA, but not NC or ND). Will this be the case? Yes all of what we produce will be under a completely...

Re: Minecore - A Brand New Engine

Why not make a good game for the engine, seeing as how it's doing better than ever, rather than forking it needlessly and trying to make a game on top of that? Well first of all, we're not really making a fork of it. We want to make it something new. You make a good point about working on a game fo...

Changing sky color with 'get_sky()'.

Heads up. Noob-posting. Has anyone tried to utilize the 'get_sky()' word in any mods they've built or edits of the default subgame? I'm trying to change the sky color for my texture pack, but I'm having trouble knowing where to start. I'm new to the Lua programming language as well as Minetest. Be k...

Re: OldCoder threatens to trademark "Minetest"

What I want to know is that can he really Trademark minetest when there's already so much establishment in the name? Also, could he be using this claim as a way to threaten the community? Apparently he's made claims before that are likely false to some extent.

Re: Let's advertise minetest!

I once owned a community with more than 10.000 overall active players (4 servers with each 1000 online at the same time, in multitheftauto), and having such a huge community is definitely not a bliss. That's what I'm kindof saying. Microsoft and Mojang wouldn't want an open source community taking ...

Re: Let's advertise minetest!

Honestly Toby and Everyone, I think the best way to go about getting Minetest out there is to just let it take its course. Minecraft started out slow as far back as 2008, but boomed in 2010-2011. About Advertising on the Minecraft forums, I think it would grab attention... but there would have to be...

I should mention this before you get too heavy on semi-transparency, as the resident Blender nut. Entities cannot support semi-transparency, only fully transparent, or entirely opaque. I should mention this also applies to player entities as well, despite being two different code classes, the last ...
